Al's snares crown

Al's Racquet Stringing proved last week that it's not how you start, it's how you finish.

After ending the regular season behind front-running La Place Rendez-Vous in the standings, it was second-place Al's who had the last laugh in the Borderland Soccer League's women's division championship final last Tuesday evening.

Set to throw

Red Gut Babes' third baseman Syd White looked to unleash a throw across the diamond to first base to record an out after fielding a soft grounder during her squad's 12-4 loss to the Fort Frances Her-icanes in the Rainy River District Women's Fastball League final Monday evening at VanJura. It was the Babes' second championship loss to the Her-icanes, previously falling to them in 2016.

Trophy hoist

The championship win was a nice reward for Al's after they had finished behind the Vous in the regular-season standings.
